You have plenty of options available when it comes to flooring. You could opt for carpet. You could go with hardwood. Laminate options are available, or you could even use vinyl. Even concrete can make a good flooring option. However, very few of those can match the beauty and versatility of terrazzo floor tile. Not sure what terrazzo is or how it works? Let’s take a closer look.
What Is Terrazzo?
If you’re not familiar with it, an introduction to terrazzo is available. Terrazzo is one of the most durable types of flooring available. It dates back centuries, and requires very little maintenance, as well. Of course, terrazzo is also a green flooring option and does not have the environmental impact of many other types of floor coverings, such as carpet and vinyl. Available in tile form, terrazzo is very strong, and generally includes a binder base with stone, glass, quartz and porcelain inlaid in it. This is polished to create a beautiful look.
How Can It Be Used?
Terrazzo floor tile can be used in an incredibly diverse range of ways. For instance, you could choose to install it in a single color, similar to carpet, vinyl or wood flooring. However, you’ll find you have many other color choices available. You can also combine different colors to create a unique aesthetic, though.
Of course, one of the most interesting things about terrazzo tile is that you can purchase it with geometric designs. Combine those tiles with colored tiles, and you can create almost any design you want, from a geometric border to intricate designs that lead the viewer around the room.
Where Can Terrazzo Be Used?
While some flooring options are suitable only for specific areas, terrazzo tiles can be installed in almost any type of application. This flooring option is becoming very popular with residential construction and design, but it can also be used in commercial applications, multi-family housing, retail locations, and many other places. Part of its appeal is its beauty, but the immense strength and durability of terrazzo tile mean that it creates a long-lived solution that offers an outstanding return on an initial investment.
